Guitar Amplifier Stacks
Guitar Amplifier Stacks
Excessive volume was always an important aspect of rock'n'roll, even in the very beginning. But as the years passed and more rock musicians were starting to play bigger venues, the demand for louder amps continued to grow. By the early 1960s, this led to the idea of splitting an amp into two separate pieces of equipment, which allowed manufacturers to make bigger speakers and put more power into their amps. The speakers became known as the stack, the amp became known as the head, and the guitar amp stack was born.
If you like it loud, then you've definitely come to the right place. Whether you're getting ready to hit the biggest stage of your career, or an amateur enthusiast who just likes to make ears ring, you'll find an extensive range of guitar amp stacks in this section. In fact, all of the most well-known guitar amp brands are here, including Hughes & Kettner, Peavey, Crate, EVH and countless others.
For those who have huge aspirations of rock stardom, you'll blow the roof off any venue with the Line 6 Spider IV.

Of course, you can't talk about guitar amp stacks without mentioning Marshall. The iconic ""Marshall Stack"" is a term that stretches back to rock'n'roll's glory days, and the JVM410H and 1936 2x12 tube guitar half stack is a perfect example of Marshall's versatility.

From Pete Townshend windmills to Link Wray rumbles, the invention of the guitar amp stack was a significant turning point in rock history. And as long musicians have an urge to play with every knob on 10, it's pretty safe to say that the guitar amp stack will continue to play a large role in popular music.
